Beware of Reshipping Scams: PackAnyWere & Package Planet


The Internet is full of ‘make money online’ scams, we all are aware of this sad fact. Unfortunately, the Work At Home industry is not immune against illegitimate job offers, and often times it’s almost impossible to recognize these scams until the famous ‘bleep’ hits the famous fan.

The following is a very sophisticated, elaborate international scam that started early in 2015, leaving behind a trail of defrauded work from home folks, as well as thousands of innocent victims whose credit card information was used illegally. It was brought to the attention of the authorities just ten short weeks ago and is under investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspectors and the FBI.

The story I am going to tell you today is about Reshipping or Package Forwarding Fraud, how it works and the parties involved:

The Perpetrators: PackAnyWere And Package Planet

(the missing ‘h’is not typo of mine, that’s how they spelled it) popped up by the end of 2014, offering a ‘work-at-home’ job as Logistics Coordinator. The base pay was $1500 per month PLUS $10 for each package shipped out. The company promised to reimburse all business expenses, including expenses for travel, entertainment, and similar items.

Address: PackAnyWere LLC., 1210 Dutch Neck Rd., Middletown, DE 19709

PackagePlanet followed suit just 3 months later with an identical home job offer. The website was completely different, of course, but the purpose was the same.

Susan – Work At Home Victim of Reshipping Scam

reshipping fraud employment contract
PackAnyWere Employment Contract

Susan (not her real name) lives in Alabama and like so many other people went online searching for a way to make money from home. She found what she thought was a perfect fit when she cam across the website from PackAnyWere. The offer looked great; she could work from home and the pay was pretty darn good.

She applied, was accepted and signed the employment contract and necessary tax forms. It took only a few days before packages began to arrive in the mail. She was instructed to open the packages, inspect and inventory the content, and then ship the items to addresses provided by PakAnywere.

The merchandise was mainly tech stuff like computers, laptops, digital cameras, camcorders, iPhones, tablets, but also higher priced hunting and boating accessories.

Unsuspecting, Susan went about her business handling about five or so shipments per week. She was supposed to get paid every month, and after about 4 weeks, there was a wire transfer made into her bank account.

The amount was a whopping $28,000 and totally unusual for Susan’s banking history. This raised a big red flag with the manager of the Credit Union, and the security specialist with the bank could verify that those funds were fraudulent.

The bank informed Susan what they found out and that the company is not kosher. Susan called the company and they explained to her that there was a bookkeeping mistake, she should deduct her “pay for the month” and transfer the rest of the money to their associates in Romania.

Luckily for Susan, her banker got suspicious and they found out about the fraud, otherwise Susan would have to pay all the money back. Unfortunately, she did not get paid for the work she did, and did not get reimbursed for her expenses.


Tired of all this BS? Take a look at MY #1 Recommendation……..100% BS free!


Where Did Susan Send The Merchandise

The Postal Inspectors were able to track most of the packages Susan sent out. Some were sent to a mail drop in Brooklyn, New York, and the workers there claimed to have no idea what’s going on. The others were shipped to a freight company, Ukraine Express, which then sent them to Russia.

Unnamed Victims of the PackAnyWere Reshipping Scam

You may have guessed it by now that all the merchandise received and reshipped by Susan and many others that fell victim to this scam, had been bought online with either stolen credit cards or fraudulently obtained account information.

Postal and FBI investigators are looking into thousands of reports from individuals as well as retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and others. The damage inflicted goes into the hundreds of thousand of dollars, and counting.

Wash, Rinse & Repeat – Enter PackagePlanet

The gangsters running these scams know very well that sooner or later they will be exposed and have a contingency plan. As soon as the cover of PackAnyWere blew off, another similar operation popped up. PackagePlanet was waiting in the wings to take over. A different look website, different address and phone numbers, same scam. I am not sure for how long this operation was active, but it shut down about 4 weeks ago.

How could Susan get so easily duped?

That’s easy to understand if you look at their websites, which are designed very professionally with about 14 to 18 pages and lots of information. The images of delivery drivers in their trucks, a worker on a forklift driving a stack of packages around, the Employment Contract and Tax Forms make the whole thing appear 100% legitimate.

Then consider the work at home opportunity and the pay. It’s relatively easy work at a fixed $1,500 salary, plus $10 for each shipment and bonus, and it definitely has a great appeal for people like Susan. You could easily do 25 shipments per week; that would bring your monthly pay check to $2,500……not bad at all.

Of course, in hindsight it’s easy to point out the obvious signs on their websites:

  • packanywere reviewThe delivery truck image: No logo, license plate some where in Europe
  • Warehouse and forklift: Name on roll cage bar: Miami Industrial (Image lifted from their website)
  • Making $2,500 a month for shipping packages? As they say “if it sounds to be too good…….”, you know the ending.

What Should You Do?

1) Don’t get involved in any reshipping or mail/package forwarding companies. Believe me, they are all scams (ABC News Video). In our day and age there is no need for services like that. There are millions of online transactions every day, where people purchase merchandise, and companies like Amazon ship the products to the buyer’s address or to a different shipping address. These transactions are traceable. On the other hand, these criminals that use stolen credit cards or account information cover their tracks by using folks like our Susan as recipient of the goods and the electronic tail will lead to them. 

2) Cover your ass if you are involved already, stop what you are doing and report to the authorities immediately. Hopefully you saved all paperwork, email-correspondence etc., because when ‘the boys in blue’ the Feds or Postal Inspectors come knocking, you need to be able to prove that you are a victim yourself. Here are a couple links to report to.

Postal Inspectors: 1-800-876-2455, or file online here

Internet Crime Complaint Center: Also file with the government here

3) Fight back and help others to avoid falling victim to this scam. Let us know your experience in the comment box below and list company name, email address and contact names so that others searching for info can find out what’s going on.


Let me be the first to post this SCAM ALERT. Here is a list of companies that are actively running this scam as we speak (July-24-2015)

  • reshipping scamsArion Forwarding Services LLC – Tyler James
  • (see image)
  • PackExpert LTD
  • M&G Logistic services LLC
  • Worldwide Supply Express (WSE)
  • SCM Logistics
  • US Pack and Ship LLC



As I said earlier it’s not easy to recognize these scams if you are unaware and unsuspecting. I hope that my yapping helped you to avoid falling victim and saved you the embarrassment and the headaches poor Susan experienced. That leaves open the question “how you can make money from home“. 

Let me keep this short. If you are really interested in leaving the nine-to-five trap and become your own boss, check out my #1 Free Recommendation and find out how I got started. It is not a get rich quick scheme (they don’t work in first place), rather the only program that will teach you everything to build a successful and sustainable legitimate online business.

That’s all for today. Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to let us know what’s on your mind.

  1. I was offered a job like this from Amazon. Is this legit or a scam?

  2. Carmen López

    What happens if u did sent a few but then stopped because u realized something was fishy and not right. Can I still get introuble

  3. This happened to me about 10 years ago, so the scam has been running for a while.
    The red flag was when i was not being paid they said I could start keeping some of the packages as payment.
    Why would a logistics Company sell other customers product. So I then contacted some of the companies where the merchandise came and they said I was buying it in my name.
    They cover their tracks well and get you into one heck of a mess illegally.
    I told the Companies I did not order any of this and they told me my credit card was a fraud.
    I immediately informed the FBI to let them know I was innocent and am returning all goods sent to me.
    It cost me money to ship the product back to the Companies but at least I did not get criminal proceedings against me.
    BEWARE if its too good to be true it is!

    I was just offered a position with a fake at home company called gammagrams inc ..everything seemed legit they sent me company info to read over and paper to sign for agreement even did a over the phone interview.. you can the lady was not from America from her accent and she just seemed really nervous when asking questions so that was a red flag for me I decided to do a little more research.. the address they gave me for there company was a shopping mall in Missouri but on the phone I was told they were located in Texas .. so I emailed the company back and told them not to send any parcels to my address and I will call the police.. they emailed me back calling me a liar and also told me if I don’t want to work for them anymore all I had to do was say it .. that right there sealed the deal no legitimate company will talk to there employees like that ! I called the post office to have them stop the package from company to my house and let them know what’s going on!

  5. Hi I was a victim of this reshipping forwarding company. They were called Freight Plus LLC. The company’s address is 155 North Wacker Chicago, IL 60606. The website is The people I was in contact with were Paul Burke and Mark Philman Just like Susan, they promised a large amount of money, had me sign a contract with my W4, and even sent me their tax id number from the IRS. So I thought it was legit. Once I asked about where my money was after a month they totally ignored me. Ignored my phone calls, text, email and even cut me off from the company’s member site where I would receive task and send reports. I just hope these people pay for what they are doing so they don’t do this to anyone else.

    Considering that so many people have come across these job offers and that I’ve heard that sometimes scammers tend to reuse their messages, hopefully putting their words onto this site will lead anyone suspecting them of anything here to verify. Also just to be more safe, the phone number 1 (615)988-7770 and the fax number 1 (615) 796-6901 were used, as well as a link to their site, Thank you for reading.

  8. Just got a email from packaging plus.. looked legitimate… description of the company and the job. But that the bottom it says “to accept this position..” wait what!?!! What about the interview process??…. I don’t believe it!!

  9. ty fitzsimmons

    yes, my son was hit by packaging plus llc, scam scam scam, we reported it to the proper authorities.

  10. Hi,
    Recently one lady with email address: contacted me & we agreed to do business.
    So, i have received couple of packages & sent 2 of them. 3 Packages are still in my house. Should i just send them back or i can keep them with me? Do they can make any harm to me?

    • Sazzad, I strongly suggest you research this amanda person. Sounds a bit fishy to me why people need someone else to forward packages. Yes, it could create a big problem for you.

  11. Ruben Macias

    I just received an email from packing plus it does sound good and everything,bit after reading Susan story I will least it alone.. What happens if I signed up but instead of sending them back the items just keep??. play their game can I get in trouble??..

  12. Hello, I am a victim as well by the company: Packaging Plus LLC
    I have sent to packages only and then the postal inspectors mailed me telling me this is a scam and I stopped sending packages and rejected them all. I changed my bank info. They keep sending me packages and I emailed them that stop sending me and I quit. She asked why. I told her I dont want to ruin my life working for a scam company. Did I do the right thing? Will they be able to do anything to harm me? She keeps calling me too and I ignored. Should I contact the police?


    • Hello Hanin, thanks for your comment. You did the right thing. They cannot do anything to you. Most likely they are located somewhere in Europe or Russia. The company registered here in the states is obviously a shell company. If they continue to send stuff and call you, report it to police.

  13. Christin

    Thank you for this post and I was the firsto report on Tyler James. Everything looked legit, but wheninquiry minds start inquiry nothing adds up; Names given, testimonials on there website, personnel task panel to report the shipping and receiving of goods, even there address with a business ID number failed to have a suite number listed for there business. What a shame and disgrace to the people getting scammed and being used to eventually be the blame.
